Right From the Start


The world and I are not on speaking terms
The world keeps trying to win me back
But it doesn't work,
I guess I'm not the forgiving type

I saw that in her too
right from the start
the brutal determination
the cruel courage
and the lonely longing to be loved
for someone to lay next to her

So what is the best thing in the world?
And even sex is about power.

Helsinki - Home Sweet Home


[caption id="attachment_394" align="alignleft" width="128" caption="refurbishing"]refurbishing[/caption]Last couple of weeks been intense. London trips, intense business development meetings, refurnishing my new flat and getting all together for moving. Some of my sensible assumptions been wrong, still I am getting a good story out of all this mess. Out of what mess someone might ask? The problem is, that once again I seem to be on a run. Where are man's roots?

"Act one was when we met, I loved you at first glance
You read your line so cleverly and never missed a cue
Then came act two, you seemed to change and you acted strange
And why I'll never know
But I'd rather go on hearing your lies
Than go on living without you"

Elvis Presley

So in this situation those words of Elvis can be thought to mean for falling in love with a girl, or falling in love with a place. Beside falling in love with girls, I always want to fall in love with a city. To see if I can grow my roots there. Helsinki was the town I fell in love with for the first time, second London, third New York. However, the real love seemed to be in my hometown of Lappeenranta. Still, once again I feel the need to be on a run away from the memories hitting hard. Man never learns?

"You look like an angel,
Walk like an angel
Talk like an angel
But I got wise
You're the devil in disguise
Oh yes you are"

Elvis Presley

Why a man has to run looking for something and when the world turns, suddenly be hungry again. One has to walk the streets again, learn to steal and suddenly the cold wind breaks again. When can a man stand tall and proud?

Helsinki, I beg you, do not betray me.

London Again


[caption id="attachment_381" align="alignleft" width="200" caption="Camden"]Camden[/caption]
Another few days (and hours spend on airports....Hate them!) in London. We finished filming for Behind The Bass, I have to thank Jonas, Victoria, Kalvin and Max for all their work on it. It is shaping up to be a very good project. Beside attending the BT Digital Music Awards in Camden's Roundhouse, I was lucky to have a night out with all the good old colleaques. Callan was leaving MoS, and we had a blast in the pub.
